The Hazard!

The tissue box may contain a small metal piece around 3-5cm in length (from an equipment failure during manufacture).

The metal piece may pose a choking hazard if swallowed. This poses a higher risk to young children.

What to do...

If you have one of the identified tissue boxes as below, return it to the place of purchase for a refund.

Affected products only include tissues:
 - made in Australia
 - with sheet sizes 200 x 195mm or 207 x 190mm.

Country of origin can be identified on the packaging tear-off tab.
If this tear-off tab has been removed and the product is already in use, refer to the sheet size on the packaging.
